Disabling "Switch to Chrome" popup

Recommended Posts

Enabling 'block pop-ups' in latest version of MS Edge settings DOES NOT stop its annoying "Switch to Chrome..." popup from reappearing. Please advise how to prevent / stop that annoyance. Thanks.

Where are you getting this popup? Inside Chrome or when you launch Chrome, it prompts you to set your default to chrome?

I'm using Microsoft Edge browser with Google search.  Every time I open up a new tab in Microsoft Edge, I get the super annoying pop up on the top right side asking me if I want to "switch to Chrome which is faster..." with a choice of yes or no.  This pop up comes up with EVERY single tab I open and I have to click "no" to make it go away on EVERY Tab in the browser.  So I disabled ad notifications in windows altogether.  I thought I got that fixed; but No!  Now, in Microsoft Edge a new pop up came up about ads configuration in every tab!!!

Enclosed is a screenshot of the latest ad configuration.  How do I stop this annoying pop-up along with the "switch to chrome" popup permanently?

I just read of a simple trick to get rid of this annoyance HOPEFULLY once and for all-in google search, click on your adblock icon and turn it off for this site, then reload the page and click "no thanks" to SWITCH TO CHROME. Turn adblocker back ON and reload google search page. I didn't think in a million years it could be that simple, but low and behold...it seems to have WORKED! GLORIOUS!! Try that and good luck~
